pin code

What is PIN code (Personal Identification Number)?

PIN code means Personal Identification Number which is used to guard the phone against unauthorized access. PIN code is usually associated with SIM card and not phone security system. The security protocol will always arise when the phone is turned on having that particular SIM card in it.

If the PIN code is incorrectly entered three times, the phone will lock until you enter the PUK code which is provided by the network operator.
